Year 5

Class Teacher:
Miss Cooke

Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome back after the half term break! We have a busy and exciting few weeks ahead including World Book Day and Red Nose Day!

PE Sessions will be on Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school at the start of each half term

Spellings will be given out on Fridays and will be tested the following Friday. I will also upload them to this page. The common exception words (below) are the spellings that your child is expected to know by the end of the year.

Reading Please try to read for at least 10 minutes daily with your child. I would like to see your child’s reading record at least once per week, and books can be changed when required.

Please come back to our class page regularly for updates about your child’s learning and if you need to contact me, please press the button on the right and start your message FAO Miss Cooke. Alternatively, contact the office and leave a message. I will get back to you as quickly as I can.

What are we learning?

In English…

In English, we will be reading, ‘I survived the San Francisco Earthquake, 1906’ by Lauren Tarshis. We will be writing a scene of narrative.

In Maths…

In Maths, pupils will look at fractions. The children will develop their ability to handle more diverse problems involving fractions, including dividing and multiplying fractions by whole numbers. The children will also move onto learning about decimals and percentages.

In Science…

Our unit in Science is ‘Forces’. The children will consolidate and extend their knowledge of forces by naming individual
forces (e.g. gravity, friction, upthrust). They will extend their knowledge of frictional forces (e.g. air resistance and
water resistance).


In RE…

Our RE unit is ‘Why do Christians believe that Easter is a celebration of victory?’ The children will explore the Easter story from the perspective of it being the story of Christ’s triumph and victory over death.

In Topic…

In topic, our primary focus is Geography. We will explore ‘Which are more dangerous: earthquakes or volcanoes?’
